Summary: The first Eee Pad I ordered has a locked screen that would not unlock. Research showed that this can be a problems with with the Transformer, but all reviews said this is an excellent product, so I took a chance and ordered another one. The second one has been great. No problems, very responsive and in my opinion, better than an Ipad, since you are not limited to using Itunes for file transfer and can put on file and videos that you have copied from your home library.
Summary: I am disappointed with ASUS quality. My major problem with it is the build quality. After using it for over half a year. The volume buttons have a break-down and for awhile it would go into Android boot mode if I press it a few times. They don't work as expected, and I have to navigate to the volume buttons in the main window. When getting this tablet, I would recommend that you get insurance, be careful with the buttons and check the quality of the screen.
Summary: I bought this tablet so I could have something that was portable and so that I could do video chats with my parents who live in Florida. I live in Iowa. I have an android based phone so from the minute I started using the tablet I felt right at home since it is so similar to my cell phone. The only thing I have found that I don't care for is the quality of pictures that the camera takes. I would recommend this product.
Summary: After having this tablet for only 7 months, we are having to send it back to get fixed for the SECOND time at OUR expense. It's increasingly frustrating. The first time, it was a charger issue. It took 3+ weeks to get it back and $20 in shipping on our part. The second time (today) it won't turn on at all. We've tried everything and it doesn't do anything. I called Tech Support and while calmly expressing my frustration, was hung up on by the CSR.
Summary: I bought this recently when it was on clearance at a big box store. I then bought the keyboard dock from Amazon, and you can also check that review. The dock is what makes this tablet really special. The tablet works great. This is the first time I've used Android 4.0, and it's an improvement over earlier versions. (I have a couple of smaller Android devices, and have also owned an iPad.) Navigation and response times are good.
Summary: I bought this Asus eee pad transformer thinking it would be a great alternative to the ipad. I had been using a family members Ipad for a couple of weeks and liked it, but I was interested in trying out an android tablet instead (mostly because they are flash enabled and cheaper). I did a ton of research and finally decided on this product. I was really suprised when I opened the package and saw how big this tablet was!
Summary: I had decided to hold off on writng a review until spending some tme with the device, and now after several weeks of using it every day, iI must say that it is an excellent device. There were no battery issues, no crashes, the screen is excellent and not as much of a fingerprint magnet as I thought it would be. It weighs less than my previous device. The only thing I wish it had is a USB port, but it is such a minor issue that I mostlly don't even notice.
Summary: I love this little Tab. Does what I want. ICS update as soon as I opened and turned on. Battery lasts about 7-10 hrs easy with heavy use. I use the Kindle app a bunch and it works nicely and syncs to all my other devices. Check email watch YouTube and watch Netflix no probs. Decent sound, speakers actually face you. I have had it kernel panic once, it was adobe flash, that freaked out and restarted the OS. Haven't tried the Dock yet, but that will come soon.
Summary: My wife and I bought this tablet shortly after the Transformer Prime was released, since the price dropped pretty significantly. The tablet was a little buggy at first, but it's hard to tell if that was the tablet itself or some of the apps / games we had installed. Regardless, after the updat to Android 4.0, and a few other Asus firmware updates, the tablet runs like a champ now!
